My Birthday: 30 Things To Do Before I’m 30

My 30 Things to Do Before I'm 30 Bucket List for 2018

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and are out of the lull limbo between then and the New Year. My birthday just so happens to fall in this limbo of not knowing what’s going on and fueled by cheese and biscuits so yesterday I turned 29. I had a really nice time actually. Straight after work on Friday evening, Adam and I headed to Salisbury and checked into a hotel before heading out to dinner at a lovely Mexican restaurant called CactusJacks and then back into town for some cocktails at the bar YoYo next to our hotel.

It was a good night, we were back by 10.30 and got a relatively good night sleep. Breakfast was had, we were hangover free and I was treated to some shopping. We headed back home on the bus, chilled for a bit and then went over to see my mum for a takeaway, drinks and a game of cards against humanity. A nice day, spent with lovely people having fun and being treated to some gorgeous things. Adam splashed out on a new bag, some fragrance sprays, new ankle boots from Hotter and a big selection of Benefit makeup. I also got some lovely things from my sisters and mum – more makeup and pampering bits which I love.

Next year I’ll be turning 30 and I aim to make a bit more of a fuss of myself. I also want to make lots of lovely memories of the year with the family so I’ve made a bit of a bucket list of things I want to do over the next 12 months. Some of them are a bit boring, some of them are focused on learning but all of them I want to get done as I say goodbye to my twenties and hello to my thirties – Adam is taking great pleasure in this saying he will still be in his twenties and someone from work kindly reminded me that in ten years time I’ll be approaching 40…thanks guys!
